Putnam students are invited to enter the Pluck-A-Duck Extravaganza’s Create-A-Card contest.
Pluck-A-Duck Chairperson Beth Markowski-Roop said, “In 2021, the Pluck-A-Duck event was excited to include our local artists creating unique duck-theme art that was displayed at local businesses for our “Duck Trail. We are excited that the 2022 Pluck-A-Duck Extravaganza includes a “Feeling Ducky Greeting Card” activity where young ducklings in attendance(on Aug 21) can color a card that will be distributed to local Senior Centers and veterans organizations, making our local seniors and veterans feel just ducky!”
She added,” The PBA Pluck-A-Duck Committee wanted to continue involving our local artists in this yearly fund-raising event, and decided to have this year’s art-activity involve our young artists. We will have one student’s design printed on hundreds of the printed greeting cards, that is sponsored by Gerardi Insurance and other local businesses, and even reward the winning design and student with a $100 VISA Gift Card! An exciting way to involve the youth in our Putnam community.”
The artist must incorporate a rubber duck into their greeting card’s theme and design. Greeting cards should be black and white line drawings created similar to a coloring book design. The selected design will be featured on hundreds of our Feeling Ducky Greeting Card. Each interested artist should create a sketch of their greeting card design and email as a PDF to; Beth Markowski-Roop at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or to their art teacher by May 30.
Some rules: Each greeting card design should fill an 8 1/2” x 11” sheet of paper with a landscape orientation. The paper will be folded in half to create the card, so the right half of the paper will be the front panel of the card and the left side of the paper will be the back panel of the greeting card.
3. All artists must incorporate a rubber duck into their greeting card theme and design. The greeting card design must be created in a color-your-own style.
4. We ask that you submit your name, a title of the piece and a few sentences about the inspiration behind your chosen theme to include for promotion (will be included on the Pluck-A-Duck event page) and added inside each greeting card. For privacy purposes, the full name of the artist may not be included.
